As we’ve said plenty of times before, there are certain wedding traditions that are totally okay to skip. We get it: Some of the more antiquated trends are no longer relevant for current-day couples, and there’s no reason to take part in a tradition if it has no particular meaning to you and your to-be.
So while you may decide to forgo the bouquet and garter toss or a traditional tiered wedding cake, the old adage of wearing “something blue” is one that we think will never go out of style.
Let’s get one thing straight: Normally, we would never suggest you and your to-be get hitched anywhere other than Philly (we’re just a bit biased). However, judging from the amount of Disney proposals we get for our PW Reader Ring series, we thought a few of you may be interested in this news: You can now tie the knot in front of Cinderella’s Castle at Disney World.
Remember when we introduced you to Maddie Flanagan, the local artist who will host a panty-making party for your bridal shower? Well, as it turns out, the last time we spoke to her she had a secret project in the works, and now we can share the exciting details with you!
Our friends over at Shoppist announced the news yesterday: Maddie just launched a lingerie line exclusively for Urban Outfitters—aptly titled Madalynne for Urban Outfitters—and her beautiful designs are just about perfect for your wedding night and honeymoon.

I’ve been seeing a lot of Morgan Stewart wedding-related headlines the past several weeks—though I have to say, until I actually clicked a bit today, I didn’t know who she was. (Answer: Reality-show main character, Rich Kids of Beverly Hills. It occurs to me now that I’ve poked into it that I did see one episode of this show once, and decided not to add it to my DVR lineup.)
But anyway. She got married over the weekend—so the wedding-related headlines really kicked up the past few days—and I have to say, I keep staring at different pictures of her dress! I love it. Like, love it. Take a look:
The couple: Samantha Wanner and Dan Gower from South Philadelphia
The ring: My ring has a round-cut diamond in the center with a cushion-shaped halo set in yellow gold. He picked it out all on his own with one note from me: It has to be yellow gold!
I’d been dropping hints since we started dating in college, but really started to send him some of my Pins last year. Dan got the Coast Engagement ring by the wonderful Sydney Rosen Jeweler right on Jewelers’ Row in Philadelphia.
Question: I’d like my wedding-day centerpieces to be really simple—I’m pretty much just picturing lots of bunches of babies breath. Is it annoying for a florist to be hired for a relatively uncreative job like this? And would it maybe even be cheaper if I just did the flowers myself in this case?
